Windows XP Performance Monitor Alerts

The Windows XP performance Monitor allows to store Log-files (for later viewing / evaluation).

Sometimes you would need to watch the chart or collect log-data for a long time, until a certain
events starts. Performance Monitor can help you with Alerts :

Select under "Performance Logs and Alerts" in "Alerts" (via right-click) to define a new selection :

Select a counter, for which you define an alert to be generated for a condition
(in this example: in cause that the Server-Object has more than 100 files open).

on the tab : Action, select what the
system should do, once such a condition
has been detected :
- make an entry in the Event Log
- send a message (equivalent to NET SEND)
- Start a Performance Log

- run a program
The tab : Schedule allows to define, on when
to start and/or stop this monitoring for the
alert condition.
